BINGHAMTON, N.Y. (AP) - State police say they’ve charged a 54-year-old man with robbing the same upstate New York bank twice within two week more than two years ago.

Troopers say they arrested Scott Wade of Binghamton on Monday on two counts of robbery following his indictment last month by a Broome County grand jury.

Police say Wade was the man who robbed the First Niagara Bank branch on state Route 7 in Conklin, outside Binghamton, on Nov. 14, 2012.

Two weeks later, state police at Binghamton again were called to the same bank after it was robbed by a man with a similar description as the one from the first robbery.

Wade is being held Tuesday in the county jail without bail. It couldn’t be determined if he has a lawyer.
